Many Master Gardeners and other experienced gardeners avoid using scientific names of plants. This class may change your mind by explaining the history and usefulness of binomial nomenclature. Despite the words being foreign to us and changing as science advances, you may be surprised to learn how much horticultural knowledge is contained in a Latin word. Bring your own plant name books to share and compare. Bring the names that give you the most trouble.
